BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - General Electric is living their slogan and bringing good things to life in Bloomington.

The company announced Monday morning, it will invest $93 million in its Bloomington plant and hire 200 additional workers.

The southern Indiana facility was once set for closure, but government incentives that the company received for making energy-efficient appliances reversed that decision.

No word on any changes at the Fort Wayne GE plant.
